Monthly Goals {October 2015}

A new month means new goals.
September is over and that leaves me sitting here singing some Green Day. I always get this song in my head come early October. If that doesn’t put a a 30 something age stamp on me I don’t know what will . 
September was a great month and that flew by fast! I have a feeling October may pass by just as quickly with all of the fall fun so I better get busy on my goals. But first let’s take a look at how I did last month.
Blog-

*Continue blogging 4-5 days a week.

*Re-do images for a few of my fall posts

*Participate in a new link-up


Done! I kept my posts on track, created new images for my pallet pumpkin post and joined up with a new linkups, Hour By Hour. This link-up was a lot of fun and kept me clicking photos all weekend long. 


Family-
*Family donut date
*Family trip to the Frisco Trails
*Attend a festival
*Attend a car show or cruise night
We didn’t do so great here this month. I was so sure we would make it to at least one car show, but we didn’t! The Frisco trail never happened either.

We did make it to the balloon festival though and we picked up donuts one Saturday and had a feast!


Fitness-

*Exercise at least 5 days a week

*Begin and complete Stage 4 of the new rules program 

*Keep a written food journal

*Do a 5 mile run once a week


Done, done, done, FAIL!

I can not for the life of me keep a steady food journal. I did great for about two weeks and then just stopped. I guess I will try this again? Or just let it go. 


Spiritual- 

*Continue reading Women of the Word

*Resume Bible study meetings with Sarah

*Be real about where I am, pray more

I read a couple chapters and met with Sarah a coupe times to talk about them. We seem to be back on track. I also posted a couple of pretty honest posts this month about some things that God has been working on in my life. One about our church hunt the other about my exercise journey.

Home School-

*Stay on track with lesson plans

*Plan one field trip

As of right now we are actually one math lesson ahead of our lesson plans, shwoo! I am trying to stay caught up or even get ahead during the first semester. The second semester is always so much longer and harder

No field trips planned yet. Hey Anna, wanna take a field trip?!


Random-

*Girls night out

*Decorate for fall making one new piece

*Get some canning done

*Create and share a fall bucket list

*Implement a new meal planning system


It wasn’t a night out but I did get in some shopping time with Sarah, I made a new simple fall decoration, canned my heart out, shared our fall bucket list and created a menu binder (it is lovely). Someday I may do a blog post about that one. 


Blog-

*Continue blogging 4-5 days a week.

*Participate in the Count Down To Halloween Link-up weekly

*Launch a new blog design by the end of the month

October is packed full of fun with something planned almost every single weekend…. and it’s already almost 1/4 of the way over!

I am so excited for all of the fall fun and family time over the next few weeks. October through December are my favorite months where I am constantly reminded over and over again through the littlest things that I am abundantly blessed.
